In a blow to brand Android, Google is planning to shift its Messages web app — which allows users to manage SMS/MMS messages on their phone from another device — from Android.com to Google.com, a media report said.

The move is seen as Google’s plan to minimise the use of the word “Android”, 9to5google.com reported on Wednesday.

The Android Messages web app has long been hosted at the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of “messages.android.com”.

Google has introduced a new feature ‘Focus Mode’ for Android devices designed to prevent its users from being consistently distracted by their smartphone.

Focus mode was first announced at Google’s developer conference in the summer as part of Android Q/10.
